A refreshing ‘compilation’ bootleg covering five appliances promoting the period Hours… album which has been recorded in typically excellent audio quality. Kicking off the set we get a nice version of the 80’s hit Ashes to Ashes and it’s good to finally hear a version of Rebel Rebel with out the cheesy ‘sha la la la la la’ soul backing bollocks on it. Also good to hear is Repetition which Bowie resurrected during the Hours period, it was an odd sort of track about wife beating which was by far the best track on the sloppy Lodger album, and a fairly good track in its own right. Gail Ann Dorsey played bass during these performances but didn’t provide vocals, which were left to another two performers who did a very solid job, and their softer and more ‘typically feminine’voices helped to create a sound which was more akin to the Hours album.
